In all companies and businesses, it’s highly important to have a great set of people to help meet your organization’s goals. But did you know that building that winning team also requires talent?

Acceler8, a co-working community for entrepreneurs and professionals recently conducted SPRINT talk+workshop series on Building Your Winning Team on June 28, at their office in Legazpi Village, Makati.

Kalibrr’s very own Senior Vice President Julius Paras was able to share some fruitful knowledge on How to Hire Ninjas and Rockstars to a room packed with new entrepreneurs, business owners, managers, recruiters, and human resource professionals.

In his talk, he identified the top qualities, or in his case, “rockstar” qualities, employers should look for in a candidate. Apart from skills and knowledge, he also emphasized the importance of teamwork, how they handle issues, and their eagerness for growth and on pushing boundaries.

“They may stumble once in a while, but rockstars perform consistently,” says Julius on looking for candidates who will still do the job despite circumstances.

Other speakers of the session were Shahab Shabibi of Machine Ventures, who talked about Leadership in the 21st Century, and Gino Cabigao of TaskUs PH who talked about Evaluating and Firing Employees.

SPRINT talk + workshop is a new series of learning sessions that equips you with the work hack you need. Every talk is followed by a workshop to further help you execute your ideas. They have different topics from industry experts every month. For their schedule of events, email
